|Tulsan honored for Interfaith work
Nancy Day, a member of Tulsa-Boston Avenue UMC, recently was honored for her 32 years of excellent work as executive director of the Oklahoma Center for Community and Justice. She will retire at the end of the year.
The recognition is well deserved, said Twila Gibbens, who is ecumenical officer for the Oklahoma Conference Mission & Service Ministry Team.
Under Day’s leadership, the center has become a national leader in human relations and interfaith work.
"I can think of no more urgent mission than that of helping people learn to live together with their deepest differences," Day said.
